Fantasy Football: Sunday Update

The NFL Network’s Adam Schefter reports that Kellen Winslow and his swollen testes (ouch!) will not play on Monday Night Football. The Saints’ Billy Miller might be available in your league and, if so, he’d be a decent fill in…In a surprise, Marques Colston is inactive against the Raiders. Get him out of your lineups…Roddy White is active against the Bears…John Clayton believes that Eddie Royal will be unable to face the Jaguars…The Bucs expect Joey Galloway back in Week 7, so if he has been cut in your league and you have a roster spot, snatch him up.

NFL News & Notes Week 6: Tom Brady undergoes successful surgery

– Patriots’ QB Tom Brady underwent surgery on Monday to repair the torn ACL and MCL he suffered in Week 1’s win over the Chiefs. Brady’s recovery time is expected to be 6-8 months. (Boston Globe)

Jeff Garcia– Jeff Garcia is expected to take over the starting quarterback role in Tampa again as Brian Griese continues to battle with an arm injury. Apparently even if Griese were healthy enough to play, Garcia would still get the start this week against division rival Carolina based on his performance last Sunday in Denver. (Tampa Tribune)

– Lions’ QB Jon Kitna will have an MRI on his back after not being able to practice on Wednesday. That means either Dan Orlovsky or Drew Stanton could start this Sunday against the Vikings. Orlovsky apparently has the edge as of right now. (Mlive.com)

– RB Darren McFadden practice with the Raiders on Wednesday, but still might be limited this week. (Oakland Tribune)

– Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan expects WR Eddie Royal to play in Week 6 against the Jaguars despite having an ankle injury. That doesn’t mean Royal is a lock to play, especially considering he missed Wednesday’s practice. (NFL.com)

Westbrook, Tomlinson battling injuries

Brian Westbrook fractured two ribs against the Redskins and is iffy to play in Week 6. Just when he recovers from his ankle injury, now he has ribs to deal with. It looks like it’s going to be one of those seasons for Westbrook. Owners should do what they can to acquire Correll Buckhalter as an insurance policy…LaDainian Tomlinson aggravated his toe injury and will likely find himself on the Chargers injury report all week. Darren Sproles is the obvious pickup here, but LT2 tends to play through pain so it’s tough to know when to start his backup instead…Trent Edwards was knocked out of the game with a concussion, but since the Bills have a bye in Week 6, he should be good to go for Week 7. Keep an eye on this, however, as a series of concussions has ended QB careers before…Tony Scheffler and Eddie Royal are probably going to miss some time with groin and ankle injuries, respectively.
